“Good food, good prices, slow service”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

Ate here two nights and enjoyed the lemon prawns set (before 6 pm) and the nasi ayam dish (only RM 5). Did not enjoy the fish and chips (bland frozen fish fillets that were not fresh).

Alcohol is a little expensive but the overall vibe of the restaurant is nice. Service was friendly if a little slow.

“Great”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

If you go there you should try mango ice blended,which is a fabulous sort of an ice cream with real fruit, it was great! Also juices were good. If you'll have a dinner try the crabs, they're very good. People who work There are very kind and friendly but sometimes you have to wait a little bit..

“Best meal in semporna”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

They serve fresh seafood and wine! Seafood is fresh and we had lobster, shrimp, clam and vegi for our brunch. Taste good. Open area is so windy, its too comfortable that we spent the whole afternoon enjoying the seafood and wine there. They also have free wifi and the Manager- Jason is very friendly,kind and helpful. He is well verse in Chinese, Cantonese, Hakka and English! He is always ready for the customer. We will definitely come back next time.

“good place to spend your aprediving”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

This is the 2nd best cafe at Semporna i would recommend. The food is delicious, the cafe could help in money changing (not always for sure), the variety of seafood is great. Manager speaks good English. The beer is a bit oervpriced but anyway you are spending great time there. If u come a bit earlier u could take table near the open space - i liked it more than sitting in the middle of the cafe.
